Welcome to Diane's Blog - Canning and Cooking at Home
This recipe is for a quick and easy dinner. We like doing this when we don't have access to our outdoor grill but, craving a burger. You can make the hamburger patty as thick or as thin as you want but, if you do go thicker then increase your first 'bake time' accordingly. The second 'bake time' is to melt the cheese, warm up the onion and toast the buns. You can double this recipe completely by using 2 pounds of ground beef and spreading into a 9x13 baking dish. The original recipe called for 1 tsp garlic powder but, that amount was a bit too strong for our tastes...We backed off of using 1/2 tsp garlic powder per pound of ground beef. I also used two 8x8 baking dishes (one to bake the ground beef and one to finish the recipe.) IF you don't have two equal sized baking dishes, just be extra careful wiping out the dish between the first and second 'bake time.'
Easy Cheeseburger Oven Sliders
1 pound of lean ground beef
1/2 garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 onion, small dice
4-6 slices of cheddar cheese
(enough to cover ground beef patties)
6 slider hamburger buns
2 Tbs melted butter
sesame seeds, optional
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix the spices into the ground beef, press the beef into an 8x8 baking dish so that you have one smooth and even layer. Bake in oven at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove beef from oven and wipe out baking dish (move beef to a large plate so you can easily wipe out dish.) Spray a bit of non-stick spray into baking dish, lay the bottom portion of slider buns down into baking dish, layer beef on top of bun bottoms, sprinkle your diced onion over beef, and lay cheese slices over - covering the beef. Add the tops of your slider buns over that creating your 'burgers'.
Use melted butter and brush the tops of buns lightly, sprinkle sesame seeds over tops of buns (optional.) Place baking dish back into the oven at 350 for another 20 minutes.
Serve hot: Using a knife, cut into beef, along the bun sides to create individual burgers.
